When you want more than a stock plastic bottle and closure that reinforces your brand and looks special on the shelf, Drug Plastics can help you design and produce the perfect plastic packaging for your product. In fact, working with individual customers to ensure the packaging meets their exact specifications is what we do best. Our custom design process can be summarized in four simple steps.
Step 1. We sit down with you to ensure that we understand your requirements. You’ll tell us about the product you want to package and any critical package measurements or specifications. We’ll spend all the time we need in order to understand the qualitative and quantitative details your packaging needs to meet. We’ll determine the plastic resin that works best for your product. We’ll help you select a specific color for both the bottle and the closure. And, we’ll recommend the most cost-effective closure liner.
Step 2. We’ll prepare some visual concepts for you to evaluate and approve. From there, we can work through any changes with you until you feel the concept is exactly what you want. Drug Plastics uses four different types of blow molding processes to manufacture bottles, and will specify the process that works best for the bottle based upon the finalized concept. All of our closures are injection molded.
Step 3. If the dimensions of your bottle or closure are different from something we already manufacture, we’ll design custom molds exclusively to manufacture your packaging. Our in-house engineers with CAD capabilities and our own mold fabrication shop will work together to build you a custom unit cavity test prototype or multi-cavity production mold. Our mold shop has been making some of the best-performing, high-quality molds in the industry for decades.
Step 4. Once the mold is ready, we’ll make test samples of your bottle and closure for you to evaluate and run on your filling lines. Once the samples meet your approval, we’ll manufacture your order. Our eight manufacturing facilities are ISO 15378 certified. We’ll manufacture your bottles and closures consistently and to the highest levels of quality. Our goal is to ensure that every bottle and closure you receive meets your specification every time…no unwelcome surprises.
